from yesterday.

my last day in Grand Rapids…I have a coffee date with a new friend, a podcast interview with Marlee of Have Company, and my papermaking workshop! if you are in the GR area, please come by! I have met so many amazing folks… I’m reluctant to return to Brooklyn, but at least I’ll be returning with eons of inspiration and motivation.

this morning already two people have come by the window who stopped and pantomimed with me…a bicyclist and an older woman. the man on the bike stopped in mid ride to give me the biggest smile, while the woman mouthed “what are you doing?!” - I showed her my piece, at which she nodded with eyes closed, then blew me a kiss.
I’ll be working on this guy all day in the have company window :) come by anytime and we can have wordless conversations, or stop in 12-6 (136 division ave s grand rapids michigan).
my papermaking workshop is tomorrow at four and I’d very much love to spend the evening with you!

This is my second to last full day here in Grand Rapids, and I certainly am feeling a lot of things…

ps. more lovely moments when I return to new york Monday evening…
